Yad Vashem Statement Regarding the Neo-Nazi Rally in Charlottesville, Virginia

14 August 2017

Yad Vashem, the World Holocaust Remembrance Center, is very concerned by the images, hateful rhetoric, and subsequent violence emanating from yesterday's (13 August 2017) rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. In our post-Holocaust global society, there is no room for racism or antisemitism. The anti-Jewish ideology of the Nazis was a precursor to the eventual murderous policy and extermination of six million Jews. These images are yet another reminder that we must remain vigilant about educating the public regarding hatred and xenophobia.

Yad Vashem is determined to continue raising public awareness on this topic through its vast educational and commemorative activities. The memory of the Holocaust – and its meanings today – is more relevant than ever to our society worldwide.
